Amalfi Again

On our previous Amalfi coast ride, we had skipped Positano and Ravello, two of the major attractions. So, with a day left on our 3-day transportation pass, we again took the Circumvesuviana to Sorrento, then the bus to Amalfi, stopping off for a while at Positano, and then, after lunch in Amalfi, the bus up to Ravello. For lunch, we went to Il Pari again. I know it sounds pretensious, but we do have our favorite restaurant in Amalfi. Same dish and wine, too. And, for once, just as good as the first time. Plus the waiter got the recipe for us.
Near Positano

In Positano; a terraced world

Imagine carrying these 80 lb puppies up or down five or six
(or 10) levels

A typical abode; everything in bloom

Beautiful place

Looking distantly back up the coast

More Mediterranean blue
